Falling hurts at any age.
Falling for older Murfreesboro folks can be much more damaging though. Broken hips, broken wrists, vertebral fractures may result. Independence may be thwarted while healing.
Murfreesboro fall prevention is vital, and
Most Chiropractic Clinic recommends that all Murfreesboro
chiropractic patients and their families be attentive to fall
prevention strategies as well as an innovative
nutritional approach to fall prevention.
Fall Prevention Ideas
Classic fall prevention plans function well
for most Murfreesboro chiropractic family members. Cleaning up clutter, wearing shoes, getting rid of any
tripping hazards, securing rugs or removing
them, installing grab bars in the bathroom, and even living in a
home that is all on one level with no steps are all ways
to reduce fall risk. Taking care of any health issues like dizziness or joint pain or shortness of breath
or balance is important as those may also instigate
a fall, also. 52.6% of patients
with mild cognitive impairment and 51.4% Alzheimer’s disease patients tend to
fall. It is key for these
patients to take more time to sit and not hurry. (1)
Most Chiropractic Clinic can help evaluate health risks like these and others
to help our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients remain
upright! Physical activity and exercise are fundamental
to keep you strong. As our Murfreesboro chiropractic
patients age, more gentle exercises are suggested
like walking, water classes, tai chi, yoga, and/or Pilates. Together,
Most Chiropractic Clinic and our Murfreesboro chiropractic care patients uncover
something that works!
Vitamin D PLUS Calcium
Like including some nutrition: A current
fall prevention proposal is to include
calcium and vitamin D together daily.
A review of 26 articles involving over 16,500
patients revealed that combined vitamin D plus calcium
supplementation significantly reduces the fall risk. Vitamin D2
or D3 alone did not have such an effect. It
is the combination that works! (2) Most Chiropractic Clinic sees
this to be very useful when discussing nutrition
with our Murfreesboro chiropractic patients, especially
with those who are more likely to be at higher risk for falls.
